AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — CBM Archives – with 20 years of biometric experience – has entered the kiosk arena by debuting a new line of customizable biometric kiosks.
CBM Archives has recognized the growing need from organizations to capture and process biometrics quickly and efficiently. With this in mind, CBM Archives looks to take their biometric solutions and combine them with the mobility of kiosks to make them more widely available to the public.
“The CBM Biometric Kiosk can be used by police and sheriff departments or other central booking facilities to fingerprint offenders or to offer applicant processing to the public,” says Darrell Whitely, project manager of CBM Biometric Kiosks. “Jails can use the device to provide inmate identity verification or even visitor checks. Probations offices can benefit from additional efficiency by allowing probationers to self-check-in such that only those requiring face-time are routed through to parole officers. Driver’s license offices can increase productivity by allowing self-service renewals. The opportunities provided by our kiosks are only limited by imagination.”
The CBM Biometric Kiosks have a modern design and can be fully customized to meet agencies’ needs. The basic configuration is outfitted with dual monitors; one is a touch screen display, magnetic card reader, signature pad, mug shot photo camera, fingerprint scanner (or optional palm scanner) and a securely enclosed central processing unit.
With the CBM Biometric Kiosk, initiating a background check is easy and convenient. Simply walk up to the kiosk, swipe your drivers license or state issued identification, and follow a few on-screen instructions. The CBM Biometric Kiosk will scan fingerprints, take a photo, and then securely submit them electronically to the appropriate authorities.
“The world is not as simple as it once was and background checks are becoming more and more common,” says Jerry Sanders, president of CBM Archives. “We are hoping that our kiosks can improve the efficiency with which these checks occur thereby lessening their impact on the customer’s life. With shorter lines we can get them in and out without taking up too much of their valuable time. Further, with our COTS based components, we can keep costs down and keep fees reasonable. From the agency standpoint, the kiosk provides a simple, self-contained unit that allows a single staff member to service multiple customers simultaneously. CBM’s flexible pricing terms can offer budgetary flexibility by allowing for either an out right capital budget purchase or long term managed services terms that could fit within an operational budget.”
